I'm afraid the brown water is rust if it is I would chuck the iron and buy a new one.

If it's just scale then mix "Lime Away" 50/50 with water pour it in the opening where you put the water in for steam, turn it on low and let it sit for a few hours, rinse it three or four times and then try the steam again.

Hi, ive lost my instructions and need to descale my iron. could you please advise me how to do it many thanks jo


CDR, Scale Away, you can buy at the hardware. It will remove the deposits. After you get it descaled you need to use Distilled water that you buy at the grocery store in it. This will avoid it scaling again.
Vinegar and water, Citric Acid crystals, Usual dose 1 teaspoon per 200ml water works

Pour it in just like water and let it steam out, then repeat with water, steaming out over a rag, sheet or something.

Hand steamer conair GS15R will not produce steam. It is on, it is full of water, the body gets warm, and it makes noises like it is steaming but nothing comes out.


Hi.

The iron steam lines may be clogged with limescale.

Try first using descaling solution to clean the lines.
Do descaling several times.

If that does not work, then the thermostat may have started malfunctioning and cutting off earlier than normal. This will cause water not getting enough temperature, and iron not steaming.

Try using a descaler product, often that can fix the problem.

Fill tank with water and put steam setting to 0.Set temp pial to hottest setting. Let the iron heat up till the light in the hand goes out. Switch off power and hold iron over sink. Push down and hold descale button until all the steam and water has gone from iron. Wipe plate and heat up iron again with no water in it.

Simac Steam Generator descaled incorrectly.


I don't think you can recover the iron. You could try to return the item !!!! but I don;t think that you will have much luck because of the incorrect descaling

Rowenta steam iron no longer steams


Your local grocery or hardware store will sell "descaler" for coffee pots and irons.

Mix as instructed (water/descaler) and pour the disolved mix into the iron. Set the iron on the highest steam settings (heat and steam volume). After it is hot, let it steam into the sink, pressing the steam button over and over to let the descaler work through all the tubes/passages, until it has all been pumped out.

Refill with more descaler (if it is not completely unplugged) and repeat until you are satisifed with how the iron is working.

After descaling, run clean water through it with the same process (but no descaler) several times.

Rowenta commercial steamer


got this off the manual for the IS 7800

CLEANING
Remove water container and clean the main unit with a damp
cloth. To maintain maximum performance, your steamer must
be descaled occasionally. The descaling intervals will depend
on the water quality and the frequency of use. The unit should
be descaled at least once a year or every 100 hours of use.
For descaling proceed as follows:
1. Unplug the unit and remove water container from main unit
by releasing container lock and pulling up.
2. Fill it with fresh water and shake vigorously to remove any
scale. Pour out the water and repeat if necessary.
3. Purchase a quality decalcifier agent and follow the instructions
of the manufacturer for the proper ratio of the mixture
to water and use.
4. After filling the water container turn it up and down to
descale.
5. Attach reservoir to unit, plug in and switch on.
6. Let the appliance run until the water container is almost
empty and do not steam any clothing with this mixture.
7. Unplug and detach the water container. Rinse it with fresh
water.
8. Fill water container with fresh water and repeat steps 5 and 6.
Note: If after descaling you believe that there is still buildup in
the boiler, repeat steps 1-8.
